Adrenaline-Charged Excitement!

Saturday, October 26, 2019

As we arrive home and settle into our daily lives, it is hard to hide the adrenaline-charged excitement we experienced last weekend.  The 2019 U-FLI Tournament of Champions, Meet Me in St. Louis, Dream Team and Singles and Pairs Championship was absolutely one for the books!

With an incredible entry, we were able to create very competitive divisions in all classes offered over the entire weekend and consequently, we had a lot of 'nail-biting' racing in all divisions, that kept everyone on the edge of their seats.  And then there was the last heat, of the very last race, when everyone in the room was on their feet, clapping and cheering as the last two competing clubs completed the run-off for 1st and 2nd place in Division One!

It truly was an amazing weekend of racing at the beautiful Purina Event Center, with the best competitors, diverse canine athletes, stellar Judges, talented Pit Bosses, dedicated Scorekeepers and attentive Line and Box judges.  So many individuals and clubs stepped up to help us throughout the weekend, which is in part why it was such a big success.

U-FLI was thrilled to host our first Browse and Brew after the Dream Teams, Singles and Pairs racing on Friday.  Everyone had a fabulous time over drinks and hors d'oeuvres while visiting with friends, shopping with the vendors and winning some incredible drawing prizes donated by the generous vendors and our supporters.  What a fun way to kick off the Tournament of Champions and Meet Me in St. Louis events!

Starting on time each day, and keeping the racing moving, we were able to finish early enough for all to have a chance to get dinner and sleep (if they wanted).  Of course, who could sleep with all the excitement, socializing opportunities and strategizing!

In closing, we want to congratulate all who came and participated in our event.  There were so many layers of involvement and support that made the 2019 U-FLI Tournament of Champions and associated events a huge success.  Although we will never be able to list all the tasks and all the people who made it possible, we simply want to say 'Thank You' to everyone and we hope to see you next year!
